Saturday, September 8, 2012

Read the full details

I am hoping to see EVERYONE who supports PAWS and our life saving work at the El Macambo next Saturday night! It is sure to be an awesome evening... a great chance for all of us to re-group and to support LITTLE CREATURES and their friends who will be fundraising for PAWS on this special evening!

PAWS Volunteers and I are looking so forward to this night and we would like to offer special thanks to our new friends Alison and Chris of Little Creatures and to The Madison Manor Boutique Hotel for providing accommodations so that I may stay in Toronto that evening and to Annette and Kayla who will make it possible for me to be away from the shelter.

SEE YOU NEXT SATURDAY!? Please read the following to learn more and be sure to share this with all of your animal loving friends, family and co-workers – OUR GOAL IS TO SELL OUT THIS VENUE – please help us to make this happen! (I’ve heard a rumor that there is a chance to win $500!).

Have you ever considered holding an event of your own to raise much-needed funds for PAWS?

Some recent examples of this are:

Lindsay Lights - Special thanks to The Lindsay Family of Richmond Hill who so generously contributed a portion of the donations from their spectacular annual Holiday Light Show again in 2007. Be sure to visit their website at for complete information on this unique experience. The Lindsay Family raised $4,500 for PAWS!

Softchoice - At their annual Holiday Party, Softchoice raises money for local charities. We are very grateful that PAWS was their “charity of choice” in 2007. Thanks Softchoice! Softchoice raised $4,525 for PAWS!

Justin - this selfless young man who turned 13 recently, decided that, rather than enjoy Birthday gifts that he may not need or use, he would request donations to help homeless animals. You guessed it - PAWS was the chosen recipient. Thank you Justin (and his Mom, Julie) for your support. PAWS Volunteers are thrilled that people of all ages are becoming more and more involved in their communities by Volunteering and supporting causes that are close to their hearts. Justin raised $500 for PAWS! Smile - Philanthropy is contagious!
